Planning and Building Certified Data Sets in Power BI

BRIAN GRANT (CSG Pro) – Planning and Building Certified Data Sets in Power BI

Certified Data Sets are the future of Enterprise Power BI. Unlocking power formerly only available through Analysis Services, these allow for a single source of truth that can easily be used by report authors across Workspaces and even outside of Power BI. That said, getting them to flourish inside an organization is far trickier than just hitting the on switch and hoping for the best. Approaches that were perfectly fine in a regular data set can become a ticking time bomb here, and knowing the right process will save you quite a bit of headache down the road. In this session we will learn what these Certified Datasets are and understand what changes need to be made to a regular dataset to get it ready for certified enterprise use.
